I am at the point where the diet is just the diet. I stay busy and eat when I have to. I guess the exact reason I chose to do the diet. I have done the 6 small meal a day thing with balanced carbs, protein, and fat. And honestly that is the best way to go. The reason I chose the Vdiet is because it is pretty much idiot proof. Your only measurements are scoops. A shaker and a blender become your best friend and you are good to go. As a business owner, a dad, and husband, it sounded appealing.
The scale hasn’t really moved much in the past week really. I am anywhere between 183 and 185 today. Not really sure what that is about but I will just continue on and trust in the process.
Tucson Weather Sucks
I will get ready for many of you Tucsonans to tell me to move if I don’t like it, but really I HATE TUCSON SUMMERS. Actually there are a list of things about Tucson I can’t stand like our Mayor and City Counsel and how they just keep making the City more broke, but Tucson Summers are enough to be the reason that I leave Tucson one day. Now that I have vented. I was just really busy this morning and by the time I was getting ready to go for my walk It was already nearing triple digits. Since I had a workout planned it wasn’t a huge deal but I decided to row a couple thousand meters on my Concept 2 rower. Honestly Rowing Is better for short bursts, but I took it slow and just used it to get my day going. Unless I get up even earlier than I am used to, I see that walking may not be going on too much longer. Tomorrow is an off day and swimming some light laps may be in the picture.
Double Kettlebell Complexes are Amazing
If you really want to find another level of strength and conditioning get really intimate with Double kettlebell Complexes. If you are a bit advanced with your kettlebell training and are looking for a program to rock you world I definitely recommend Master RKC Geoff Neupert’s book Kettlebell Muscle. My workout today was simple but rocked my world. The cool thing is I did this workout last week with double 35lb bells and went as fast as I could. Today I did double 44lb bells which is significantly heavier. I did 6 swings, 6 cleans, 6 presses, 6 squats, 6 renegade rows on each arm. The difference is, today I took about 2 minutes between each set for a total of 6 sets. Also, I realize my swings were a bit low but this was my 5th set and I was a bit smoked already at this point. The cool thing about today’s workout is I had the opportunity to workout with another RKC in Tucson, Sergio Giardini. It was great to have someone look at my technique as well and someone that gets what hardstyle RKC training is all about. Todays workout was great. By the way if I havnen’t mentioned it, if you are swinging bells with a trainer I really hope they are RKC certified and follow hardstyle philosophy. If you are swinging the bells above your head then I would look elsewhere(great way to throw out your back or neck).
The journey is going strong today and only having a week left is making it easier. I look forward to putting this all together for all of you to read. If anything this diet has been a challenge that has been great to just be a part of. I don’t want to ruin my final blog by chatting too much about my final opinion since I don’t have it yet, but I will say that splenda sucks. And looking at the fishoils Biotest said it was a good idea to add a preservative Polysorbate 80, I don’t know about you but I really don’t need more preservatives in my diet, especially one with SIDE EFFECTS. But I will say blogging consistently has been a blast for me as well and something I will continue to do!!
